According to new research, adoption of mass notification systems is expected to increase dramatically over the next several years.
A new study from IMS Research forecasts adoption rates of MNS solutions at Fortune 500 companies to increase from 20 percent in 2010 to 40 percent by the end of 2015. Sales of mass notification systems exceeded $1.2 billion alone in North American in 2010, according to the report.
Report author and analyst Michael Arluck says that MNS software products will likely lead revenue growth for the market, as they are beginning to pick up traction in markets such as the commercial and healthcare sector.
"In the commercial vertical, MNS software sales have begun to accelerate as end-users begin to expand employee coverage and learn to leverage MNS technology for more routine business continuity functions such as IT outages and supply chain disruptions," Arluck said in a statement. "In healthcare, MNS software has also proven to be particularly useful in situations where medical staff need to communicate confidential or otherwise sensitive information between doctors, nurses and other critical care staff."
